RTÉ NSO/Jaime Martin NCH, Dublin 7.30pm ¤15-¤35/¤13-¤31

Jaime Martin’s (above) con­cert with the RTÉ NSO (re­plac­ing the ad­ver­tised Joshua Weil­er­stein) opens with the Canon and Fugue from Bach’s Art of Fugue in an or­ches­tra­tion made by English com­poser Ge­orge Ben­jamin in 2007. It closes with the or­ches­tra­tion of Brahms’s First Pi­ano Quar­tet which Arnold Schoen­berg made in 1937. In spite of a few de­cid­edly 20th-cen­tury touches, the flavour of Schoen­berg’s ver­sion some­how re­mains firmly Brahm­sian. Pi­anist Boris Gilt­burg re­places the ad­ver­tised Kha­tia Bu­ni­atishvili and the evening’s con­certo has been changed, too, from Prokofiev’s Sec­ond to Tchaikovsky’s First.
